WIP: “Dear Sister”

Self started writing this one today, while she was having lunch at Chez Mamie on Hanway Street.

Thankfully, today not as much noise from the ever-present construction crews. Next time she returns to London, there will be a building just a few yards from Chez Mamie. A building filled with luxury condos and a Primark.

Dear Sister:

I carry you with me everywhere.

You’re a ghost or a fetch, I’m not sure which.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Sylvain Landry – Week 47: BLUE

The Sylvain Landry Week 47 theme is BLUE.

He always comes up with the most interesting prompts.

Self knows the picture is not entirely blue. But the blue that’s there is pretty obvious.

This is the Chihuly that’s in the lobby of the Victoria & Albert Museum. It’s a huge sculpture, jaw-dropping.

Isn’t it gorgeous? Stunning?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Numbers 3: More From Bletchley Park

Each building in Bletchley Park has specific displays and documentary films. In the codebreaking huts (a total of 11, self thinks there were), the lighting is purposefully dim, as if to give the impression of how much secrecy was involved.

Yet the grounds themselves are beautiful.

Self never got to see the Benedict Cumberbatch movie, The Imitation Game. The film has a special exhibit in the Mansion House — there’s very interesting information from the costume designer, about the thinking behind the way the actors — who played a constellation of codebreakers that included Alan Turing and Stuart Menzies — were dressed.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
